We get into one of the small cabins with four other people and watch as the view of the Hallyeosudo National Park got more and more spectacular with every meter we climb. 
Shortly after alighting the cable car, that's when our real challenge begins!
It took us some time to climb up the steps all the way up to the top, it was definitely tiring but a must to because there's awesome awaits you.
